I would like to visit the boardwalk during the 12th or 13th of October. Is it a nice time to visit?

Submitted by Richard A, Randallstown MD on September 9, 2019

I am often in OC at this time of year for Fall Cruise Weekend. It is a great time to visit, especially if you like classic cars, but even if you are not a car person, it is a great time to come to OC!.
